German and American Christmas House Add-On Metal Craft Die
18 In Stock
Scrappy Tails Crafts
this is a generously large optional add on metal craft die for our new “interactive slimline sized pop up bird house card”, which will measure 9x4 inches when completely assembled. The bird house cuts out a basic house shape, which we recommend to cut twice from heavyweight card stock. Once you cut your basic house shape, you can use this add on set to decorate your house as a “German Christmas House or a Traditional American Christmas House” instead of a bird house. You will receive a rectangular window, along with a beautiful door and a basic German style Roof to build a “Fachwerkhaus”. Included are also a couple of decorative German Haus elements for the roof line and below the windows. The cute Christmas House can further be adorned with cute Christmas elements like the included potted Christmas tree, the door garland, a door wreath a smaller window wreath, a standing lantern, small hanging wall lanterns and of course there are tiny baubles and stars and other little elements like different sized bows included - so that you can make your houses super festive for the holiday season. This set works well with the neighbor hood house add ons, which gives additional door and window options for hundreds of different variations. Of course you can use this set independent from the birdhouse pop up, but the windows and door are specially designed and sized to be used in conjunction with the slimline birdhouse pop up card. Also available is a cool slimline sized brick background die to further accentuate your house and chimney. The home furnishings stamp set was designed to fit perfectly inside the house to create a cozy and homey atmosphere. That stamp set also includes some fun stamp sets perfect for a new home owner and a festive fireplace!
Directions for metal craft die use:
- Gently remove the metal craft die from it’s packaging
- Using your favorite die-cutting machine, lay a piece of strong card-stock facing the sharp edges of the die and run the required “plate sandwich” through your machine (please note that different machines use different die-cutting sandwiches)
- These dies are thin steel dies and they work in most available manual and automatic die cutting machines, such as your Vagabond, Cuttlebug, Gemini, Gemini junior, Spellbinder’s Platinum, Big Kick, Big Shot etc.
- Dies work on different thin materials, including paper, cardstock, specialty foiled or glitter papers
